I hate that you did all this beautiful build-up, and then just... wasted it like this. More than half the wordcount of this stupid story deals with Harry regaining innate human respect, and then in the end you reveal that nothing at all changed, nothing is different, he just dies still believing himself to be lesser.

This story would have been better if you'd abandoned it after chapter 5.

i hate how harry is being treated by everyone! but i feel like Ron's behavior doesn't seem reasonable. i think he would've admitted he was wrong by now.
MuggleMeatloaf chapter 3 . 1/26
i feel really bad for harry! i wish that Lily and James had come to visit Harry more or something. i want them to feel guilty for how they've treated Golum Harry. I'm disappointed that the Weasley twins came to apologize to Harry before Ron did! i really wanted Ron and Harry to be friends again. i guess in this fic, Ron won't be the person Harry misses most for the second task.

omg I'm so mad on behalf of harry! that's so not fair what the other judges did! also, I wish ron would've come to his senses by now but I'm still hoping he will soon

i feel so bad for Golum-Harry! it's so sad that his parents and the real Harry are avoiding him! i wish Ron would've come back to Harry to support him after everyone found out he's a golum though! i hope that will happen in this fic soon!

At the beginning, Harry complaining to the Goblet about not being able to stay with Sirius because of it seems out of place, just as Harry's claim that it had "ruined his life" it's an exaggeration at that point.

I think that scene was written with the idea of it taking place after the tournament, but somewhere the author was inspired to make it at the start of the tournament instead. Harry not being able to stay with Sirius on the run after meeting Voldemort would make sense on account of it being not safe, and being that upset after having been lead to resurrect him by the Goblet's tournament would indeed be considered ruining his life.

But since the story begins at the start of the tournament I feel that entire first scene could use a rewrite so that the language Harry used and the complains he makes are more appropriate.

Right now, because this Harry was so overdramatic at the start we all need to question if every other problem him brings up later is really as bad as he describes them to be or just his brain exaggerating the problems like he was doing at the start. He is essentially established as an unreliable narrator at the start, and that makes it much harder to trust his perspective and sympathize with him.
